We found these gorgeous vintage coupe champagne glasses at an estate sale recently. While doing a little bit of research to get them ready for listing, I realized that what I actually knew about champagne would've fit quite easily into just one of these glasses. Since the party season is upon us, I thought I'd share a few fun facts about this lovely beverage - it might come in handy at your next cocktail party - as well as a few links to some wonderful vintage barware (besides my pretty coupes, natch) from some of my favorite etsy shops.
Real champagne comes from one region of the world: Champagne, France. Everything else is just sparkling wine.
Coupes are still used for champagne at weddings, where burps from bubbles are hoped to be kept to a minimum, but they've also become very popular now for cocktails, part of the Mad Men-inspired trend of wonderful vintage barware.
Speaking of wonderful vintage barware... yeah, flawlessly smooth segue, I'm cool like that.
